121 Jackson, a conversion project set in Pioneer Square started selling last year. The previous 7 unit apartment building was converted into 6 two story condos with two apartment units combined as a large loft. 1 bedroom’s start in the mid $500,000’s with the largest unit priced at $1.25M. The units range from 627 square feet to a spacious 1,776 square feet.
One bedroom Two bedroom loft
Built in 1902, the building has gone through extensive remodeling including rebuilding the wall on the south side of the building and a complete retrofit for earthquakes. I had the chance to check it out last weekend and here are a few unique features that stood out to me:
- Interior of the units feature exposed brick and wood beams with more contemporary finshes. A touch of the old meets new feel.
- With the exception of the studio, the remaining units have its own private deck right off the bedroom. There is no water view but you are getting city views of brick buildings.
- Instead of engineered hardwood floors, real hardwood floors are installed along with a gas fireplace.
- If you are wondering about the systems of the building, the developer has updated the plumbing, electrical systems and ducting.
This is probably one of the nicest conversions in Pioneer Square. If you are not looking for the more plentiful highrise concrete condos with soaring windows and want something with a little bit more personality, 121 Jackson may be a good alternative.
Those look awesome, but what sort of earthquake will a brick building like that be able to withstand?
This is probably my favorite condo project in Seattle. I’ve had my eye on the $1.25M one, but I’m only dreaming. I encourage people to take a look at this place…its pretty sweet.
The building was built in 1902 and it has survived previous earthquakes so i would imagine that with the new retrofit, it would strengthen the building further. As for how strong of an earthquake it will withstand, that is a good question. I’ve asked the seller for more info and will post the reply if i hear back.
